2 Chainz is a stylish dude — and he'll tell you that himself. The Atlanta rapper recently sat down with Sowmya Krishnamurthy of AskMen for an awesome interview. In it, he says he sees himself as a fashion icon and a role model to other rappers. He also drops gems about where he got his interest in clothes from, his relationship with Kanye West, getting free swag, and his love for jewelry.

But I don’t know, it’s just an element I was around, my love. I can’t say one specific thing led me to like accessories. It’s just something I like doing.
